The philosophy pushing the project MISSION

Return to VAX Mainpage

The principal objective of Villa Alfred Xavier is to increase the "global health" of its resident-members.

To do this, Villa Alfred Xavier will offer specialized accommodations which will be affordable for the majority of retirees - those who do not qualify for subsidized housing programs and who do not have the "large revenues" to pay for such luxury (condos) by themselves.

Construction will implement recommendations of recent research reports which confirm the need for a healthy environment, flexible, and secure to make it possible for seniors to increase their health, as much on the physical plan as psychic, financial as well as spiritual and... an environment which will enable them to valorize themselves in the eyes of the general public, and to prove that it is not necessary that they be a burden on society.

The residential complex will be composed of the following elements:

  • 30 self-contained apartments
  • 29 studios - average surface area (A)
  • 33 studios - large surface area (B)
  • 30 offices for professional
  • 25 commercial spaces
  • 16 conference rooms
  • 16 reception rooms
  • 10 craft rooms
  • an exercise room
  • a solarium
  • a chapel
  • three swimming pools (four-season - 100' x50 ' and 2 wading)
  • a gardening four-season hothouse
  • in addition to several other space-activities, as well as
  • many interior parking spaces

V.A.X. will of course offer all the services of traditional residences, that is meals, maintenance of a landscaped environment, nursing assistance, domestic assistance, and others.

V.A.X., with the participaCtion of its resident-members, will offer products such as vegetables, flowers and fruit from the 4-seasons garden, crafts, and other goods and services to the local public. V.A.X. will as well offer commercial services for customers such as a family restaurant and a donut shop (ie. Tim Horton's), both open 24hrs a day - 7 days a week, as well as a smoke shop and others. In addition, it will also offer offices for professionals; craft workshops; reception and conference rooms; interior parking; the use of the 4-seasons swimming pool (100' x50 '); as well as the use of the solarium (125' dia).

Moreover, this new lifestyle concept will offer meal services to the regional public, will collaborate in Community activities and will invite local residents to its own activities, and will exchange services with Community groups in order to animate the lifestyle of these residents.

The studios and room & board units will enable the reaching of more old people, in addition to being more economical (especially with their construction by pre-manufactured modular methods).
